I’ve been teaching my older kids (2nd & 3rd grader) the 50 states! My third grader is fairly efficient at naming about half of them (and we just started a few days ago). I show them the state and we sing a 50 states song. Then we practice on the map. I’ve just started showing them the blank pictures of the states (without names) and seeing if they can identify them. They have been getting pretty good!!! 🙂 I also play games with them.
Check out this video of my kids learning the 50 states:
